Early childhood education lays the groundwork for the development of a lifelong learner. As educators, it is our goal to support the whole child by providing learning opportunities in all areas of development including social-emotional skills and academic foundations. Children develop an excitement for learning through a play-based, multi-sensory approach and meaningful interactions with others.

 

We strive to provide a fun, safe, and exciting culture that encourages students to take risks, problem-solve, and move toward independence. Our program provides learning experiences that incorporate student interests and address individual needs. Additionally, we believe that our relationships with students and families are central to the advancement of each child’s development.

 

Our intent is to build a strong beginning for future learning and empower children to reach their highest potential.

 

Preschool classes run Monday through Thursday. 

  • Morning Session - 9:00AM - 11:45AM
  • Afternoon Session - 1:00PM -  3:45PM

The school will be open Friday by appointment only. 

 

Children living in the Sidney City School district who are between the ages of 3 and 5 who are determined eligible for special education services through a multi-factored evaluation process receive preschool services free of charge. We welcome all children with disabilities. Transportation is provided according to the child’s IEP.

 

In addition, we offer the preschool opportunity for typically developing children. Typically developing children can attend for a monthly fee and parents are required to provide transportation.
